Fabricio Bloisi highlights artificial intelligence, genetic biology, fintechs, education, health, energy and food as the main areas for entrepreneurs to pay attention to

Fabricio Bloisi, president of iFood, a foodtech reference in Latin America, points out the main trends for the market, which entrepreneurs from different segments should keep an eye on: energy, health, fintechs, education, genetic biology, artificial intelligence and food. “Soon, we will have 7 billion people connected in the world. Everyone has a smartphone in hand connected to the internet, doing everything differently from what is done today”, said the executive during a live broadcast promoted by Abrasel (Brazilian Association of Bars and Restaurants) this Friday (13). 

According to Bloisi, in the next five years there will be many more changes in the world than in the last ten. In the food sector, the trend is towards cheaper, healthier and more practical food. And delivery, in turn, will grow much more. “People eat around 90 times a month and, currently, delivery is present in less than 5% of this total. The trend is for delivery to participate in more than 50% of consumer eating moments,” stated Bloisi.

People spend a lot of time preparing food, but, according to the president of iFood, this behavior will change. “The restaurant segment will grow a lot with Delivery. People will still cook at home, but as a hobby, which will continue to be highly valued”, he said. Today iFood makes 60 million deliveries per month – in China, there are applications that can make 30 million deliveries per day. 

Another trend for entrepreneurs to pay attention to is the area of education. “Education as we know it today will change in the next ten years. And now, yes, technology will definitively enter the area of education, allowing greater access to knowledge”, he said.

From the iFood Takes Off, a platform that offers short courses in web and mobile versions aligned to the needs of partner restaurants and delivery drivers, it is possible to learn about personal finances, entrepreneurship, emotional intelligence, digital marketing, among others.

iFood's goal is to impact more than 10 million people in the next five years with opportunities in education. There are three pillars, the first of which is training 25,000 low-income people in technology, reducing the technological blackout in Brazil. On the second front, the plan is to train 5 million people in courses aimed at the work of the future and entrepreneurship. And, in the third pillar, encourage the areas of science, technology, mathematics and engineering in Basic Education, impacting 5 million students and teachers in the public school system.
